No actually live in CT. Bought this car at a local Acura dealer. One of the several things I like about this MDX are the rims for that year. Had the '17 MDX and although rims were nice they were a bit smaller.
That's definitely not a stock rim (at least in the US) and US models never came with headlamp washers. It's possible it originated in Canada and was imported at some point.

Excited to finally join the club. Took a few months to find one in the exact color I wanted. White with black interior was tough for me to find so i had to be patient. Originally wanted an advance trim but settled with a 19' tech.

Beautiful White tech there.

Have it in Blue.

Waiting to add LED fog lights on mine.

Had the '18 Pilot and the drive, comfort level with Acura wow miles apart.

Looks like mine. Ps, if you don't need a front plate, what I did is remove this plate holder and installed stainless screws and painted the screw heads with touchup paint. I first used a Dremel to take down the plastic that was pulled forward around the original screw holes so that the new screws sit flat.

Nice. Will consider that. I’m still waiting to get plates since it was recently just purchased.

I should have done more research. Can't believe our 16 doesn't have Navigation.

I did a thing this past weekend! Excited to be joining the club with my new 2018 w/ Tech.
I have a TLX in fathom blue/gray interior. It's a great color combination; you'll love it.

If want in-dash nav you should get something like a grom or vline. Apple Carplay and Android Auto are way better than the OEM navigation.

I would agree. Our TSX nav is so outdated, but I'm not spending $100 to update it. I would like to throw Waze onto this display. I might need to look into what you said about Grom and Vline.

If you're a DIY-er and really want the spots to disappear, use some bondo filler then paint and polish the spots.

I have a 2015 and won't pay for a nav update. I use a HVAC vent phone mount even though I have the in-dash nav, so even the cost of an aftermarket carplay adapter like Grom is questionable, especially if I'd want to trade in the car eventually.

@Icculus , we don't use NAV enough for it to be an issue. While I like GROM, I can't see spending that much for something that may not even get used. We know where we are going 90 percent of the time, so I think it would be a waste.
